Do you or someone you care about suffer from depression?
Sooma Depression Therapy is an effective first-hand treatment option for depression. It is painless and involves no pharmaceuticals. The therapy can also be used as an add-on therapy along with other types of treatment, such as pharmaceuticals, without a risk for dangerous drug interactions.
The therapy is easy to manage and a majority of patients feel relief from their depressive symptoms already in the third week of treatment. In fact, more than 6 in 10 patients experience at least a 50% improvement in depressive symptoms after three weeks of treatment.
What is Sooma Depression Therapy?
Sooma Depression Therapy is a treatment that uses noninvasive brain stimulation to treat depression. The brain stimulation technique used is called Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Depression changes the activity in certain areas of the brain. By directing a weak electric current from a small, portable device to these areas, this activity can be normalised and the symptoms of depression can be relieved. One session takes 30 minutes, and is repeated once per day for three weeks. During the session, you can sit back and relax, read a book, take part in various therapeutic activities, or talk to your doctor.
Transcranial direct current stimulation is a modern method for treating depression since the turn of the century. It has been proven effective through research as a treatment for depression. Research on the safety of tDCS as a treatment method has also shown it to be completely safe to use, even for adolescent and elderly patients.

Who are suited to the therapy?
The therapy is suitable for major depressive disorder and depressive episode in bipolar disorder. Your doctor will always make the decision about your suitability to the therapy. There are various factors that influence the decision, which makes it not possible to answer this question fully here.
What are the side effects?
Perhaps the most significant advantage of Sooma Depression Therapy is that the side effects are short timed and relatively harmless. You may encounter itching under the electrodes and some headache or skin redness after the treatment session. This makes the therapy a viable option for those patients who receive difficult side effects from medication.
Can I buy the equipment?
The equipment is sold only to healthcare professionals, who provide the treatment as a service to patients. The aim is to get you off the treatment after your symptoms have been treated, not to continue with the treatment indefinitely.
